HB_FSkip

Move the record pointer to a new position in a text file

Syntax

      HB_FSkip( [ <nLines> ] ) -> NIL

Argument

<nLines> is the number of lines to skip. Defaults to 1 if not specified.

Returns

NIL

Description

HB_FSkip moves the text file record pointer, similar to the Harbour DBSKIP() function and SKIP command.

A text file “record” is a line of text terminated by a CRLF pair.

Example

      // display each record of a text file
      HB_FUse( "test.txt" )
      DO WHILE ! HB_FEOF()
         ? HB_FReadLn()
         HB_FSkip()
      ENDDO
